A Jubilant Thirtieth 

Oh my family, the majority of it is dysfunctional, but the family that we actually spend time with and see regularly, are absolutely fantastic.

My cousins surprise 30th was on Sunday, and it was great!! She walked through the door just after the majority of people had arrived and settled, unfortunately, I was going to attempt to capture her reaction when she walked in, but I was distracted, with the food, classic Mark.

She said she thought she was heading to a small gathering with her husbands family and was just wearing gym clothes before Robbie (her husband) made her get out of them and take the coffee stained jumper off. Classic Bridgey. Needless to say she was super surprised, and the whole thing went off without a hitch!

The setup was very quaint and simple, yet beautiful. Plus, Aunty Anne and all of that side of the family, cook amazing food #bonus, oh, and that cake mmmm.

I also got to play with my baby second cousin, Bella. She’s adorable, and I don’t know whether I think that because she the only new little one added to the family since we were all kids, or the fact that she’s just absolutely adorable.

Anywho, we managed to get photos with all the all the men (Fathers, Uncles, Brother, Cousins and the couple who married in) in one, and the women in the other, just from our side of the family, that was a laugh. This part of our family can be a riot sometimes.

Always make sure your legs are crossed the right way in the photo, next time Bella will get it.

It was one of the nicest catch-ups we’ve had in a long time. And I think this photo of my Grandma, Auntie and Cousin, shows just how jubilant the occasion really was
